With our new live streaming feature, you can use your IP camera with YouTube Live to create a 24/7 live view of your location or project.
By using YouTube, you share your video stream to the largest video platform in the world. It can (most possibly) scale to stream to as many users as you need – without any costs for additional users or bandwith.
Add the live stream directly into your website and share your YouTube channel on social networks.
We connect to the live stream of your camera via RTSP. Almost all IP cameras support streaming. We convert the stream on the fly, if necessary, and send it to YouTube Live.
Your stream users only connect to the YouTube Live player (embedded on your website or via your YouTube channel).
There is only the one streaming connection from your camera to us – so you only pay for the used traffic/bandwidth of one user to your provider.
And because YouTube Live does not charge anything, there is only the fixed monthly costs for our streaming plan per camera.
1.) Find the stream URL of your camera and set up your router, so that we can connect to your camera stream.
2.) Log into YouTube and create a live stream.
3.) Set up webcam.io streaming with both – camera URL and the YouTube Live streaming URL.
Done. If there are questions, just contact us and we will help.
The YouTube video player is available on a large number of devices, including TV and mobile. The player provides best user experience for bandwidth and device speed.
We monitor your camera from our servers 24/7. We will send you an email (or a slack message) if your camera connection is lost and your live broadcast is interrupted.
We are still testing the YouTube Live streaming feature.
